Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit

Johnny Flynn is pleased to announce his third record, Country Mile, will be released on 30th September through Transgressive Records. This new album release follows two critically acclaimed and widely loved albums, 2008's A Larum and 2010's Been Listening.

The theme of the album is one of journeying, with the way as a teacher: a "Country Mile" being an indefinite distance. Softly spoken, Johnny Flynn is a somewhat unlikely star. Yet this multi-talented enigma fronts Johnny Flynn & the Sussex Wit and has appeared in many of our country's most exciting recent theatrical events: The Heretic and The Low Road at The Royal Court, Jerusalem, plus last summer's Shakespeare double-bill - Richard III & Twelfth Night - at the Globe and the West End. He has the whole world at his feet. This new album sees a remarkable step forwards for a very special song-writer.

After a two-year hiatus from the live circuit, Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit announce an October headline tour, which includes London's Hackney Empire.
